Stephen Phillips, of West Hartford, holds Apache, his chiweenie (Chihuahua-Daschund mix) while enjoying the second to last day of angling season on the White River on Monday. “I’m staying optimistic about how bad this storm will be. Irene wiped out all of the fish in this river for a while, and I’m really hoping it won’t happen again,” said Phillips, who often fishes with his dog.
